In Honor of My Upcoming Book, Let’s Talk About LOVE

photo-1515871204537-49a5fe66a31f

My upcoming book about how to manifest your ideal relationship is a little over 1 month away in being published! I’m so excited to help you go from feeling loveless in life into feeling FULL of love AND be able to SHIFT your mindset beliefs AND your life with regards to L.O.V.E.

Before I met my chemist, I was single for 9 years and I was feeling as if timing was ALWAYS off for me when it comes to love relationships. And because I believed over time that my timing with love was always off, this is how it actually came to be. And what I didn’t realize before I realized it all was that I was SO SCARED to speak up about my true feelings that I just didn’t speak up at all. And then it became too late for the relationship.

Furthermore, because I kept up this cyclical fearful behavior, not only was I not getting anywhere with love; but I also gathered more internal documentation to further prove that “the timing is always off for me” was in fact TRUE. Can you understand where I’m going with this?

I created my own perpetual cycle of:

1) not speaking up about my TRUE feelings to others
2) by not speaking up at all the timing DID become off for me in love
3) I kept internally repeating the same patterns of fearful mindset behavioral patterns that turned into patterns of actions
4) I gathered more and more of the same data to further prove my OWN mindset belief about love with regards to my own self and my own life.

Whoa! Let this sink in…

So, What DO you Do About This?

The reason why I was able to identify my mindset belief patterns was because I made the decision and the commitment to CHANGE my ways, thus my life, and ALLOW in all my blessings. This is actually how I manifested 99% of everything I ever wanted into my life within 10 months!

Change is what creates CHANGES for the BETTER in your life. ALLOW for changes so that you ALLOW your blessings to come into your physical realm.

Both your conscious and your subconscious are at work with regards to your mindset beliefs. In order to SHIFT your mindset beliefs from a place of limit and lack TO a place of free-flow abundance of blessings, you must identify what is keeping you feeling STUCK in your life. Note: I’m saying “feeling stuck” because this is what it is. You are not stuck, you are just feeling stuck. There is a huge difference.

You can seriously call in anything you want into your physical realm. All you have to do is BELIEVE that it’s happening to you, for you. Manifesting is a skill, it’s a journey. It’s not a destination from being at point A and going to point B in order to be fulfilled in your life. And each time you do receive your manifestation into your physical realm, you want MORE into your life. This is just a natural thing us humans crave in the Universe.

The First Steps to Shifting Your Shit

The first step to shifting not only within your mindset beliefs, but also in your life is to be open to change. If you are not open to changes, then HOW COULD your blessings come into your life? Fear is strong for many of us, but when is enough, enough in your current state of your life?

The second step to shifting not only within your mindset beliefs, but also in your life is to start discovering and uncovering WHY you have your current state of beliefs. Why do you honestly believe the way you do right now with regards to what you are calling into your physical realm (but it hasn’t arrived yet)?

The third step to shifting not only within your mindset beliefs, but also in your life is to practice doing your Mastering Your Mindset work DAILY. You are learning a skill, just like when you learned how to ride a bike and drive a car. It didn’t happen overnight, but it happened. And it CAN happen very quickly!

When you are performing your Mastering Your Mindset journaling, ask yourself:

1) Why am I in my current state with regards to love?

2) What happened to me to create and perpetuate these strong beliefs?

3) What is the worst that could happen if I allow my current mindset beliefs to continue?

4) What is the best that could happen if I ALLOW myself to SHIFT with changes in my mindset beliefs?

5) What is the best that could happen if I ALLOW myself to SHIFT with changes in my actions?

Start there and really get honest with yourself. Get completely REAL with yourself, there is no right or wrong answer. What you are doing is uncovering and discovering how your subconscious is currently ticking within that phenomenally magical brain of yours. Oh, and if you haven’t figured it out already, you can use this exercise with ANYTHING you are wanting to shift within your mindset and in your life. Just change the topic when you do your mindset journaling!

Have a wonderful holiday and rest of your week. Stay safe, stay positive, and don’t forget to do your Mastering Your Mindset journaling DAILY (all you need is 5-10 minutes each day). I totally believe in you, I know you can do this, and I’m super excited for you! If I could shift and call in MY ideal relationship, I KNOW you can, too!

Learning How to Attract Your Soul-Vibe Tribe

22780681_1855589484470934_1336334082747283632_n

Hey Sensational Soul!

Every week I like to give FREE Mastering Your Mindset training to help you tune into your thought patterns and how they are communicating to both your soul’s core and to the Universe. This week’s training is aimed at attracting the kind of friendships you really desire into your life. However, this can also be used for attracting ANYONE and EVERYONE who vibes with your soul because your soul’s vibe attracts your soul’s tribe. So, let’s get started!

Journal Out the Following:

1) Answer this sentence stem at least 10 times: the character traits I admire are…

2) Can I answer at least 3 people in my life who exemplify the above character traits? If yes, who are they and what traits do they embody? If not, are there any book or movie characters you can think of who embody these traits?

3) Finish this sentence stem 5 times: the character traits I admire in myself are…because…

4) Between prompts #1, #2, and #3, are there any commonalities that you notice? For example, maybe both #1 and #3 are “funny”. Or, maybe both #2 and #3 are “adventurous” and “energetic”, usually energetic people like to do adventurous things.

5) Looking over the commonalities between prompts #1, #2, and #3, how do you think these types would spend their free time? For example, a “funny” person might like to go to comedy clubs or go to funny movies. “Exciting” and “adventurous” people might like to go indoor sky-diving or off-trail bike riding. Brainstorm hobbies of the character traits you admire. There is no right or wrong answer to this, just let whatever comes to mind out onto paper or your computer document.

6) Look over the ideas you came up with for #5, are you partaking in these kinds of hobbies, yourself? Why or why not?

7) If you answered “yes” to #6, what might be keeping you from meeting others who share similar hobbies, even though you partake in them (what are you afraid of)? If you answered “no” to #6, what are you afraid of when it comes to partaking in this hobby, yourself?

8) Why do YOU think you are not meeting the type of friends you long to have in your life?

9) Now that you have confronted what you are afraid of with regards to meeting your soul’s tribe, answer this question: what is the worst that could happen if you took a chance on meeting new people in general?

10) Now that you have confronted what you are afraid of with regards to meeting your soul’s tribe, answer this question: what is the best that could happen if you took a chance on meeting new people in general?

11) Free-flow it for the next 2-3 minutes by finishing this sentence stem: I am now CHOOSING to COMMIT to being open to receiving my soul-tribe by…

12) Have you joined Facebook groups, clubs, or meetup.com groups around your hobbies and interests? Just an idea…

Be Open & Allow For It

Be OPEN to meeting new people. I know, I’m an introvert. I do understand that it can be scary at times. But I just remember that when I join a Facebook group or a club it’s because I love the hobby (itself).

So, I don’t really think about the people because I don’t want to overwhelm myself all at once. I focus on the hobby and the interest, and then people come into my sphere.

Through time by being 100% MYSELF, my soul’s vibe assembles my soul-tribe…and the others just fall away. It takes time, commitment to your end-results, and faith that you ARE meeting your soul-tribe. It’s totally happening for you! Have a wonderful weekend!

Setting Boundaries Is Healthy, No Matter Who You Upset (A Rant)

FB_IMG_1541627137966

 

Hey Sensational Soul!

If you’re anything like me, you don’t like to upset others. In fact, harmony is more important to you than ruffling other people’s feathers.

However…

You wake up sometimes and you think to yourself, “I’m ALWAYS giving in some shape or form and people just keep taking from me! I’m so exhausted of this and I’m ready to just hide from the entire world!”

I felt this way for years, and I do mean YEARS. Then I decided I needed to examine WHY I was allowing others to take advantage of me, take me for granted, and just keep taking from me altogether.

And this is what I’ve learned:

▪ Pleasing everyone around you is NOT going to make them happy. In fact, it makes them even more greedy in their need to be supplied with whatever it is they want from you. You give them an inch and they want a mile. You give them a mile and they want 100 miles. It’s a cyclical form of self-sabotage that leads you FURTHER AWAY from your own self-love. Sure, I know, you are going to make up an excuse such as, “But so and so needs me to do this…” Whatever, you don’t love yourself and it shows.
▪ Putting others before yourself is actually going to make things WORSE for you and for others. But how? It’s because you set unrealistic expectations towards others when you put them before yourself. And this leads to lack of respect that you so crave from others BECAUSE they know they can turn to you at ANY point in time, for ANYthing. You’re now the “welcome” mat you didn’t realize you have become until it got all muddy and peed on from dogs passing by while on their walk.
▪ Being the person who “saves the day” for everyone else drains your energy and makes you a cranky soul no one wants to be around- and then you end up feeling lonely because no one wants to be around you because you’re so damn cranky! Yep.

Newsflash, you ARE human. You are NOT a robot, you are not Iron Man, and you are NOT Superman or Batman either. I hate to disappoint you…I would choose Batman; but this is beside the point.

If you are agreeing to a lot of requests by others, you are draining your energy reserve. And when you drain your energy reserve, you don’t have much energy left to take care of yourself. And when you don’t take care of yourself, you get cranky because “the vampires”, as I like to call them, keep wanting to suck your blood/energy from you. Not ALL vampires are as enjoyable to be around as Count Dracula on Sesame Street…

—————————————–

I’ve been there. I’ve most definitely been there. And I needed a HUGE wake-up call

Most people don’t realize their 1 or 2 requests are being multiplied by 30 or more people/situations on a daily basis. So, of course, they don’t realize that you are smiling and nodding “yes” when inside you are wishing and praying, “If only I could manifest a 20-minute nap” each day. This brings me to this question:

Are you getting enough sleep at night? Probably not. I’m in the same boat, sometimes.

So, what can you do to turn this all around?

▪ Before you RESPOND to an email, to someone in person, or to them over the phone, tell them you will get back to them soon because you need to check your schedule. And then really think about it asking yourself, “Do I REALLY want to do this for this person? Or, am I just wanting to say ‘yes’ so that way I don’t upset them?”
▪ Understand that no matter how much you please others, you are NEVER going to be able to make EVERYONE happy. I mean, just last night I blocked some negative asshole on social media because he decided to drink the negative Kool-Aid and was spamming my social media page with rude comments and gestures.

So, I put my foot down on social media (along with a cheeky and funny photo quote) warning everyone that I WILL block their ass if they come onto my page and spam my page with rudeness and negativity (I don’t do that to their pages). Well, one person (not the person I blocked) actually blocked ME after leaving a response stating they didn’t like my “temper tantrum”.

Cue…what’s the phrase? Oh, “Byyyyeeee, Felicia!”

Listen, I don’t care who you are, if you’re going to be rude TO me, I’m just going to block you because “ain’t nobody got time for that.”

Why try to please people who cannot understand that it’s actually a GOOD THING to have healthy boundaries in life? Yes, I am here to help people, we all have our gifts we share with the world; but this doesn’t mean I should stand for bullying. HELL NO!

You can’t please everyone, and you really shouldn’t WANT to please everyone, anyway. Own yourself, you are a total badass at life and you DO deserve the self-respect you maintain FOR your own soul. Which brings me to my next point…

▪ You can’t pour from an empty cup. If you are spending most of your time each day tending to others’ needs, you won’t have any time for yourself and to refuel your OWN energy. And after a while this leads to a train-wreck (i.e.- you, wall, you hit wall, you fall down).

—————————————–

What to do instead?

PACE YOURSELF. Utilize a calendar on your phone and space out each task, each day. For example, I perform my Mastering Your Mindset journaling each day and I allot myself at least 5-10 minutes each day to do it. And then I allow myself 30 minutes or so to respond to emails/messages, an hour and a half for blogging, etc. (space it all out).

Also, when you pace yourself and spread things out on your calendar, you are not only more likely to STICK to completing them; but you are also more confident in replying to a request to help set the necessary healthy boundary in place, “Let me check my schedule and I will get with you soon!”

And then you look at your calendar and buy yourself some time to figure out:

1) do I really want to do this? Or, am I just saying “yes” because I don’t want to upset others?

And

2) where can I fit this in my day and on what day (BECAUSE I really want to do this)?

—————————————–

Before last year I had NO CLUE what it meant to have healthy boundaries in place for myself. And then I woke up after feeling completely drained and just plain irritable. Not to mention that I had a health scare and was ordered “to rest” for a week. I’m happy to say my blood pressure is in good condition, thanks TO setting healthy boundaries. BONUS! I lost 21 lbs. when I took back my OWN power and put my self-love and care FIRST. No gym required.

When you live by your own healthy boundaries you put into place, you start to feel calmer, happier, more at ease, in flow, and in alignment. And then everything you want to manifest comes more rapidly BECAUSE you are emitting calmer, happier, more at ease, in flow, and in alignment vibes into the Universe stating, “more of these types of blessings, please!”

I strongly urge you to re-evaluate your thought and behavioral patterns if you are feeling overworked, overstretched, and completely drained of your energy.

And for your Mastering Your Mindset journaling, ask yourself the following and journal out your answer at least 5 times:

▪ WHY am I constantly feeling stressed/tired/anxious/nervous/etc.?
▪ WHAT could I be thinking/feeling and doing INSTEAD in order to fulfill my self needs and self-love?

It’s time to get more in touch with your soul’s wants and needs, Baby!

Until next time…

I Just Want to Scream! And NOT in the Good Way

How-to-Tame-Your-Anger-copy

It feels like lava is in my esophagus and it’s slowly rising into my mouth. Yet, I keep calm despite the fact that lately there is a lot of funk in the air, and many people are being extremely rude towards me and to others.

Are you the type of person who bottles up your emotions inside of you? And then you burst all at once?

Or, are you the type to have outbursts in the exact moment of something influencing your mood?

Do you take your anger and frustrations out on OTHERS? Or, do you tend to become angry and frustrated with YOURSELF?

Do you go straight to the source when you are angry or frustrated to hash it out? Or, do you go to others and vent about them, instead?

I Have a Secret

I have a tendency to bottle up my negative emotions for fear of “rocking the boat.” I sometimes bottle up my positive ones, too, for fear of showing any kind of attachment.

I have more to disclose: I take out my anger and frustrations on myself. I try to figure out what I did wrong. And sometimes I vent to people who are close to me (but not at them) BECAUSE I’m trying to figure out what the hell just happened.

We All Have Our Moments of Feeling Like A Ticking Time-Bomb

I ask these questions because I find they are important in getting to know yourself in how you operate under pressure. Furthermore, it helps you to be able to be more AWARE of your emotional reactions vs. more thought-provoking responses.

While we can’t always adjust our emotional temperature 24/7, there are some things to keep in mind and practice while performing your Mastering Your Mindset journaling to BE more aware and take your power back within yourself.

So Ask Yourself While Journaling Out The Following:

1) Is bottling up my current emotions/unleashing my current emotions through hasty reactions going to SOLVE/HELP the current situation? State your case: why or why not?

2) Is bottling up my current emotions/unleashing my current emotions through hasty reactions going to HELP my relationships with others in my work life and/or personal life? State your case: why or why not?

3) When I think of my current challenge that is influencing my negative emotions, what am I TRULY afraid of about it? WHY am I afraid of this outcome?

4) What could I be thinking and doing in order to SHIFT from these emotionally-charged feelings of frustrations or anger so that I no longer feel like I am out of control of myself and my life?

Remember

Everything IS temporary. What you are currently undergoing right now is not going to be the same a month, 3 months, 6 months, or even a year from now. And what is the best way to take your power back within your soul and put yourself back into the driver’s seat? Gain KNOWLEDGE around your thoughts/feelings of WHY you are thinking/feeling this way. In addition, Google some articles to read to further understand that you are NOT alone in your feelings. Lastly, you CAN and you WILL get through this.

Whether or not you take your frustrations or anger out on others, or you bottle them up inside and explode all at once, you ARE ultimately responsible for YOUR responses. We all have our emotionally-charged moments, but we always have a CHOICE in how we want to go forward with the situation at hand. And while it can be challenging to remember during these emotionally-charged moments, practice makes for progression in empowering yourself for WHEN you have these charged moments.

When you practice at thinking and feeling how you TRULY want to think and feel, it gets easier and the outside influences won’t affect you the way they used to affect you BECAUSE you are in the driver’s seat of your soul and of your mindset. Everything is relative and nothing is permanent in this Universe (except change, change is always constant).

Have a great day!

Change Your Mindset & You Change Your Life,
